Syngenta TopRes – Club Root Resistance
Syngenta Club Root disclaimer
The Syngenta resistance against Club Root is effective against the predominant races Pb:0 and Pb:1 and against the less frequent race Pb:3 but not against the infrequent race Pb:2 that may occur in some fields .
Genetic resistance is only one of the tools to manage Club Root. Culture measures such as liming, use of fertilizers with high percentage of calcium, proper drainage, good crop hygiene management are several of important components of an integrated approach to manage the disease.
We always recommend to first execute small variety trials before starting commercial production of a new variety.
